Slow, Slow Day

So far everything is going better than the doctors anticipated. Esther did just spike a fever, but that is very expected with IL2. Monday's problems didn't start until the end of the infusion, so I'm headed to bed just in case it's an early morning.


One of Esther's other beloved nurses stopped by for a bit today and they read "The Hiccupotomus." Esther has said she wants to be a nurse like Miss Rebecca. If so, she'll be a very good nurse. Another gift this week has been warm meals delivered three nights from Brent's Place. It was so nice to see friends today, and thanks for the hugs!


Thank you for holding us up.




  1. Standing with you all in prayer today, while at a conference in Greece. Thank you for humbly and honestly sharing your stories. My heart breaks with both the pain and the beauty of your experience. God's light shines ever more brightly. Do not lose heart, dear family.

    Love, patricia.

    "For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; ..." 2 Corinthians 4:6-8a

  2. I am so glad that you have people in Denver who love guys are so easy to love. Praying for you as you endure, friend.

  3. Hey Sam, I just read your last several posts. It seems like it has been a really long week. I thought of the story in 2 Chronicles 32 where Hezekiah is under serious attack and Sennacherib is mocking God, saying that He cannot save. But Hezekiah puts his hope in the Lord. I love the last line of this verse:

    "So the Lord saved Hezekiah and the people of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib king of Assyria and from the hand of all others. He took care of them on every side." verse 22

    I'm praying that God will take care of you and your family on every side.
